Don’t ever tell Evan Rachel Wood she can’t pull something off.

Wood has been rocking short hair for the last couple of years, and while she’s totally slaying the look, you’ll be surprised to find out what inspired her to go through with the big chop in the first place.

“Growing up, somebody said I didn’t have the face for short hair,” she admitted to Glamour. “But I think your hair can change the way you feel about yourself. I cut my hair into a Mohawk when I was 23. That was [five years ago], and I’ve never really grown it back. I felt such freedom.”

Wood may love her short ‘do, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have any beauty regrets.“When I was in my early twenties, I plucked out all my eyebrows and drew them on. I was going for a goth-y, more grungy version of a pinup — I was so into these Old Hollywood movie stars,” she explained. “It was really fun at the time, but I look back and I’m like, ‘Why did you pluck all your eyebrows out, dude?’”
